In my encounters with Kahoot, It is a great thing that Kahoot gets attendees to listen and interact during webinar sessions. It helps presenters ensure that people are listening and learning something. With Kahoot, it is easier to convey messages and learnings during webinars as attendees look forward to answering all questions right during Kahoot time.

If you want a prepackaged option for learning that requires minimal instructor input, comes with no support, and offers a limited number of options as far as a dynamic and engaging learning experience, then this is probably the right option for you. If, on the other hand, you want a product that does a lot of different things, has excellent customer service, dynamically engages and challenges the user in a number of different activities and learning exercises, then, uh, please look elsewhere.

Pros
Kahoot!
  • Useful for either, in-person or online classes: it can work from a projector or screen in in-person classes, or by sharing the screen in online classes.
  • Excellent to get an idea of the understanding or knowledge level of a group of people: depending on the intention of the game, the professor or person in charge of it can make and change the questions to address certain points.
  • Easy to use for both professors and students: Kahoot is intuitive, simple, and fun to use.
  • Interactive and engaging: Kahoot is a game designed to work as a tool for professors, which makes it perfect to use with students.

  • Integration with Canvas is seamless and easy to use.
  • Assignment completion, for students, is straightforward and easy to use.
  • The SmartBook allows students to read as they are tested with questions and this helps them learn the material easily without having first trying to read, memorize a chapter and then answer questions.

Cons
Kahoot!
  • They can add more ways to perform quizzes.
  • The site is not very simple to find your way through. It is uploaded with so much data; therefore it would be good if they can organize it a little bit.
  • It would be good to give free templates to free users to attract them.

  • Difficult navigation upon sign-in
  • Too many choices per chapter - difficult to know which part to select to walk through assignments with students

Usability
Kahoot!
The site's currently layout feels busy. If you are not a seasoned Kahoot user, it is easy to be distracted and overwhelmed by the information presented. I would not recommend this site to a novice computer user. If the user is tech-savvy and willing to navigate the help topics provided by the site, lessons and games can be created more easily with time and practice.

The information that Kahoot shares on its blog and support center is updated frequently and provides many ideas for ways to use the platform. I have personally received timely support from Kahoot for any issues I have encountered. Their dedication to their users is amazing. The company is incredibly receptive to suggestions or ideas from their community.

Personally, I did not encounter McGraw-Hill support. However, I worked with colleagues who needed support and were able to receive in a timely manner. Overall, McGraw Hill Connect is user-friendly (at least from teacher interface) and easy to navigate, which minimizes the need to reach out for support. The help button is useful and provides plenty of immediate support.

Alternatives Considered
Kahoot!
Kahoot is better for my competitive students, they love seeing their name constantly on the leaderboard. Kahoot has more lessons to chose from and my students simply like it more than Quizizz. Quizizz is good for more formal assessments, while Kahoot is better for more whole review of content. Both are appropriate in different situations!

McGraw-Hill Connect does a great job being user friendly and has relevant tasks and activities for what needs to be taught. Blackboard does a good job being used as a communication and quiz board and Cengage operates based on activities similar to Connect.

Return on Investment
Kahoot!
  • We use the free version so there is definitely ROI for us.
  • It provides easy access to a quiz feature without having to use complicated software.
  • So many people are using it now that some students seem to be getting a little "over it."

  • Because it did not integrate well with BBlearn and the adaptive quizzing did not function properly, we lost a great deal of time and had to face a large number of student issues. If it had worked well, we may still be using it.
